Sharada was a legendary dragon queen and the mother of the antagonistic black and red dragon clans. Widely regarded as one of the most amazing and powerful creatures ever to have lived, her specific talent stretched to “farsight,” which Merlin calls “very good guessing.”
One of her vision included an impossibility: a star-colored dragon, born from her line – and not some kind of albino, either, but born with diamond-like scales – and this baby, according to her view, would not only stop the war between the reds and the blacks, but also bring peace between all the dragon-clans as had not existed since before the First War.
It’s yet to be seen whether Suvi can pull that off. Merlin has high hopes, and we’ll have to be content with that.
